The relationship of the project to other NIH projects and data sets, such as ENCODE, GWAS and Cancer projects will be highlighted, and strong emphasis will be placed on showcasing a range of scientific presentations that use GTEx data.
We encourage your participation and submission of abstracts for talks or posters!
Main meeting: 8 AM – 5PM
Poster reception: 5 PM – 7PM
Abstracts are due by May 16th, 2016 and can be submitted through registration.
About the Genotype-Tissue Expression project
The Genotype-Tissue Expression project (GTEx) aims to create a public atlas of human gene expression and its regulation across multiple tissue types, enabling the research community to dissect the effect of genetic variation and gene expression, and to aid in the functional interpretation of genetic associations with disease.
